In Memoriam: Fran Fuqua
Edith P. Davis
Decatur, Georgia

Azalea Chapter member Fran Fuqua died at her home in Jackson, Ga., on Friday, Oct. 28, 1994. Fran was a longtime member of the ARS, first in New York and then in Atlanta after she and Allison moved south. Fran was a very special person - very generous and giving with her time, talent and resources. She and Allison contributed many, many plants, seeds, cuttings and great food to Chapter activities and were most faithful in attendance, even though they had to travel a greater distance than most of us. She was the Chapter expert on classification of evergreen azaleas at the annual flower shows. She was quickwitted, thoughtful and always a joy to work with. She will be greatly missed by all who were privileged to know her.
